For the past 26 years, it has been carefully maintained, correctly stored, and loved by the family who used the Daimler for various special family occasions and frequently attended local Jaguar Enthusiast Club events, it has covered a little over 3,000 miles during this time.

In 2004, the Daimler was treated to a high quality respray of both sides, the bonnet, roof, and boot lid remain the original one stage aluminumized cellulose finish, the condition and originality of all the panels is quite exceptional. Equally, the chrome is completely original and in excellent condition and the interior is a very special place indeed.
